Ferguson returns for Warriors match
06 Mar 2013 - Community/Country Cricket, General News, Redbacks, SACA
West End Redbacks' selectors have named a 13-man squad for Thursday's crucial Bupa Sheffield Shield clash with the Warriors at Adelaide Oval.
Callum Ferguson will return to the squad after a successful Australia A series against the England Lions.
Ferguson, who missed game one with groin soreness, made 74 in game two against the England Lions and top scored in game three with 65.
Redbacks paceman, Chadd Sayers, who is recovering from a side strain, completed training on Tuesday and is still a chance to play against the Warriors.
Peter George has flown back from the Toyota Futures League game in Perth and is on standby.
All-rounder, Sam Miller, who debuted for the Redbacks at the start of the season, has also been added to the squad after strong form for his Grade club Prospect.
Daniel Worrall strained his hamstring at training on Tuesday and has withdrawn from the clash against the Warriors while batsman, Tom Cooper who is currently in Perth with the South Australian Futures League team, has been ommitted.
The Redbacks are currently second on the Bupa Sheffield Shield table, four points behind the Commonwealth Bank Victorian Bushrangers and two points clear of the XXXX Gold Queensland Bulls.
A win against the Warriors will take the Redbacks to 30 points and in a strong position for the team to qualify for its first final since the 1995/96 season.
